This riveting, high energy and romantic production is a non-stop, exciting journey taking guests back to a time that tells a tale of Dolly’s own family history that includes a special love story on how Avie Lee Owens and Lee Parton got together and became Dolly’s Mom and Dad.

This show, despite other reviews we read, was excellent! It's not Dixie Stampede's show--it's different. The quality of food and entertainment is still of that caliber you've come to expect from Dolly Parton. You hear her music, you see physical feats (amazing talent), and eat...More

Very similar to Dixie Stampede. High wire acts, daredevil, lumber jack and a beautiful store of how Dolly's parents met. The food was more than filling and really good. Use your Dollywood season pass for a discount.

The actors were amazing but the story line was a farce. Seeing those pole dancers (lol) scurrying up those poles was unbelievable. I was expecting something like the She-kon-o-hey (spelling probably wrong) show from a couple of years back. It is billed as a story...More

The food is great similar to Dixie Stampede. The show is very good kiddos couldn't take their eyes off the stage. Lots of neat tricks and flips, the dog part of the show is pretty cool. Loved the acrobatics! Will keep you on your toes!
